Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive

  • Regular price $31.44

 combines the strength, reliability and excellent physical properties of a two-part WEST SYSTEM Epoxy with point-and-shoot convenience. The self-metering coaxial cartridge dispenses a gap-filling structural epoxy that bonds tenaciously to wood, metals, fiberglass and concrete. The tube comes with a static mixer that lets you lay down a bead of thickened epoxy with any standard caulking gun. Six10’s shear thinning properties make it “thinner” as it’s worked. It can be easily tooled into a non-sagging fillet or used to wet out light to moderate reinforcing fabrics like fiberglass. The hardener provides a long open time but has fast thru-cure. Six10 stays workable in the static mixer for 42 minutes, making it practical for long or complicated assemblies. Each tube of Six10 comes equipped with a static mixing wand.

Six10’s cure profile also has some handy features. Our chemists developed the hardener to provide a long open time but fast thru-cure. With a pot life of 42 minutes, WEST SYSTEM Six10 will provide over an hour of working time in a thin film but will achieve an initial cure in just 5–6 hours. An additional characteristic of Six10’s cure profile is that sufficient working time is maintained in warm temperatures. The long open time also means that the epoxy will stay workable in the static mixer for 42 minutes, which is very practical for long or complicated assemblies.

All adhesives rely on good surface “wet out” and saturation to achieve a good bond to the substrate. Six10 has a viscosity high enough to resist sagging but can still saturate and wet-out a surface without pre-coating, thanks in part to shear thinning. Our chemists accomplished this formulation by using an ingenious filler package in both the resin and hardener components. With the 600 Static Mixer attached to the Six10 cartridge, it’s easy to lay down a bead of thickened epoxy adhesive right where you need it. The consistency and of Six10 Adhesive is perfect for fillets.

Storage/Shelf life Store at room temperature. Keep cartridge plug in place when not in use to prevent contamination. With proper storage, resin and hardener should remain usable for several years.
